Political Satirist, Bestselling Author, and "Wait, Wait" Panelist P.J. O'Rourke to Speak at TU

Sep 9, 2013

On this installment of ST, we offer a conversation with P.J. O'Rourke, the well-known conservative American satirist and journalist who's been writing articles and books about --- and just basically poking fun at --- politics, economics, culture, and current events for nearly forty years now. O'Rourke's bestselling books include "Give War a Chance," "Holidays in Hell," "Parliament of Whores," and "The CEO of the Sofa" --- and his newest book, "The Baby Boom," is due out later this year. He speaks with us about several different issues and ideas, mostly as they're connected to his forthcoming book, on today's StudioTulsa. O'Rourke is also a contributing editor for The Weekly Standard magazine and frequently appears as a panelist on NPR's "Wait, Wait...Don’t Tell Me!" quiz show --- and he's scheduled to open The University of Tulsa's 2013-14 Presidential Lecture Series tomorrow night, Tuesday the 10th, with a free-to-the-public address at 7:30pm at the Donald W. Reynolds Center, at 11th and Harvard. (Neither tickets nor reservations are required for this event, and you can learn more about it by visiting this link from the TU website.)
